Default Adding link in or near Category Property Description text

Store ID: 33556
Website URL: http://shop.weddingdeal.com/store
URL to page in question: http://shop.weddingdeal.com/store/category/veils/

I just hired a writer to create articles on topics for my store. One example topic is listed above, Wedding Veils. After I paste this article on a page on my site, I want to link to it from the top of the store page for the relevant category. Again wedding veils in this example.

How do I do that?

All I know is the Category Properties where I add the description. Please tell me where I can add text to the same area on the page as the category description and make that text a link to the article.

Sorry for such a basic question, but I appreciate the help.

Hi,

Right now you have the following code in your Veils category description:
HTML Code:
Wedding veils help to create that aura of pristine beauty for the bride. Crystal wedding veils create an amazing princess feel.  All kinds of wedding veils with crystals are available to make the bride feel even more special.
You can add something like this to get a link to the article to appear:
HTML Code:
Wedding veils help to create that aura of pristine beauty for the bride. Crystal wedding veils create an amazing princess feel.  All kinds of wedding veils with crystals are available to make the bride feel even more special. 
<a href="http://shop.weddingdeal.com/calling-all-wedding-vendors/">read more here</a>
The only other thing you will need to do is to change this:
HTML Code:
<meta name="description" content="[category.description]" />
To this:
HTML Code:
<meta name="description" content="<?php echo strip_tags($category->description); ?>" />
Here: The Factory > Your Store > VIEWS > CATEGORY PAGE > Default > View menu > View <head> Elements.
